The shining sun and the  heat can be harsh, especially to your skin. Pollution and other environmental contaminants take away your skin’s natural essence, leaving it oily, dull, and blemished. best dermatologist in vadodara giving few tips to follow in this summer:

 

1. Lighten  your skin-care routine.

In the summer,  skin-care routine may need to be a little more lightweight. The heat and humidity of summer means you can swap out a heavier cleanser (think cream or oil cleanser) in favor of a gentle, foaming option.

2. Keep your skin most hydrated.

Remember that summer is the season when your skin requires moisture as well as hydration. Invest in a good hydrating cream . Wash your face first and apply moisturizer as directed at night to repair, rehydrate, and soothe your skin. A mosturizer can treat specific skin conditions like dryness, acne, oil, etc. Especially if you have acne-prone or oily skin, losing one skin-care step with a combination moisturizer/SPF can help keep skin clear.

3. Have a  concentrated  vitamin C serum.

Vitamin c is great tool for your skin for whole year, but all the more important in the summer. Vitamin C helps prevent hyperpigmentation, improve the appearance of fine lines, and can help with collagen production. Layer a few drops on your skin between cleansing and moisturizer.

4. Add an exfoliation skin-care tool.

Dr Mithun from Essence Aesthetic clinic Vadodara not recommending to over-exfoliate, but the summertime is the right season to slough away. If you have oily skin, more exfoliation into your skin-care routine helps you most. Remember that exfoliation is required for your entire body and not just your face. You should, however, make sure to be gentle while exfoliating your skin.

6. Cut down your shower time.

Many of us shower more than once a day during the summer. Keeping showers short, around four to five minutes is recomanded.  Showering in water that is too hot, can lead to over-drying your skin, leading to inflammation.

7. Cut down on make up.

Summer means that you should ease up on the makeup and cosmetics. Wear minimal facial makeup to allow the skin to breathe . Humidity and heat suppress the skin’s ability to breathe and stress it out. Avoid anything heavy on the face. Use a tinted lip balm, and organic kajal in summer to give your skin some rest.

8. Don’t forget to hydrate.

Water is the essence of healthy skin tissue. It keeps your skin supple, soft, and glowing. Remember to carry water anywhere you go and drink a minimum of 8-10 glasses of water. Water is also very crucial to flush the toxins out from the skin through sweat and urine.

9. Wear sunscreen.

Sunscreen should be your best skin tool during summers. Choose one that has a broad ultraviolet spectrum (between 30-50 SPF and covers UVA and UVB rays). Re-apply every two hrly if you are spending all day in the sun. Make sure to cover your hands, feet, shoulders, and neck as well.

10. Take Special Care of the Eye Region.

While you choose moisturizer and sunscreen for your face, remember that the skin around your eyes is much thinner and more delicate as compared to the rest of your face. Pick a good under eye gel that has hyaluronic acid, vitamin-c. These ingredients keep the skin around the eyes hydrated and prevent wrinkle formation.
